A fresh take on our origin story

Museum of the American Revolution Admission Ticket with Audio Guided Option
Going to this museum was like learning about the American Revolution for the first time. I learned so many new things and very much appreciated how much the black, enslaved and indigenous peoples' experiences were woven into the story - which is how it always should have been!

Great telling of history through pictures, video’s, and stories. We purchased the audio wands, but didn’t use them as there are plenty of stations with videos

Interesting Artifacts and Knowledgable Staff

Museum of the American Revolution Admission Ticket with Audio Guided Option
We learned a lot at this museum. I especially liked George Washington’s tent because it’s just amazing to me that it’s managed to be preserved after all these years. The staff is also very friendly and knowledgeable. My only complaint is that they would just walk up and start talking to you, which for most people is probably not a big deal. I’m just antisocial. To their credit they did have some interesting things to say and we did have some nice conversation with them. If I could I’d give 4.5 stars instead of just 4
